Design meditation cabins to help Tokyo citizens destress and reconnect
We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to the 1st and Green Award winners of our “Sleeping Pods On A Cliff” competition – Marco Moretto and Maciej Abramczyk from Netherlands!
Maciej Abramczyk from Netherlands
Marco Moretto (M.Sc. TU DELFT, BNA)
Has worked as an architect in the Netherlands, Italy, and India, currently he is based in London. Within his practice, he focuses on different designs and cultural projects that often challenge procedures and theoretical concepts by centralizing other possibilities of architecture. Since 2020, he has been part of the editorial team for the Exploratorium part of the Dutch contribution to the 17th Architecture Biennale in Venice.
Maciej Abramczyk (M.Sc. TU DELFT)
Netherlands-based architect, founder of Cases Study Homes – a design practice focused on housing innovation, exploring links between typology, politics, and social dynamics.
This is our first collaboration together, but we both have tried to embrace the complexity of the urban environment by working across multiple scales and disciplines.
Architecture competitions are an opportunity to test and explore ideas that would otherwise likely remain in a drawer, never to be formed into something potentially useful. This way, competitions invite innovation.
Participating in design competition is a way to make your voice heard, as well as to give yourself precious exposure to professional networks and a pool of opportunities.
Design a structure that would function as a source of education on past events or a method of raising awareness of ongoing injustices
Use architecture to create different emotional states
